The service was excellent and the food was great! We ordered two appetizers and two entrees. Everything was prepared to perfection. My wife ordered the Brussel Sprouts. I don't typically like Brussel Sprouts, but I ate more of them than she did. they have a really unique cocktail selection as well.

You know you're going to have a great meal when you come to Bo-beau. There is something for everyone on the menu from salads, flatbread and burgers to pork shank and catch of the day specials. The fried chicken and rockfish special were both standouts during this visit. The Pork Shank never disappoints, especially with those hushpuppies! Sit outside, just be aware of where the sun will be setting so you don't end up with it in your eyes1

Not like the one in Ocean Beach! Our sever Janna was VERY slow. Dirty glasses, dirty plates were sent back to start the evening to celebrate birthdays. After having a rough start, there was no sense of urgency or changing the experience. She moved even slower and pouring a glass of wine from the bottle was comical. Major training needs to occur. The seemed fun and nice. Not sure we could give another try.

This place is over rated. The only really good item our group received was the Brussels sprouts. The fish tacos were ordinary, the flatbreads were just dough with some tomato sauce spread on top, the steak was barely OK. Not worth the amount.

I feel like the quality of food has gone down:(. (Mussels not fresh, less pancetta in Brussels sprouts, dessert not fresh). I really like the vibe and it's the best restaurant La Mesa has to offer but you need to stay consistent. Believe it or not there are foodies in the east county and we do notice quality and consistency. I really want to like BoBeau and to keep coming but not if it doesn't stay consistent. Hope this was constructive:)

This was our first time on the patio, and it was very pleasant, which is no doubt why almost all patrons were seated outside this summer evening, while the inside was still empty at 6:30. I wish the food had been as good as the ambiance. My fried chicken was just average, tender but not juicy, served with a rather tasteless corn succotash and a dried out and overly salty corn muffin, still wearing its paper liner. I'd expect this at a Denny's, but not a Cohn restaurant. Corn bread baked in a pan would retain moisture and texture far better. My husband's pork shank was excellent, but the accompanying masa "amaze balls" were ghastly. Our guest seemed to like his steak okay, but certainly didn't rave. The roasted Brussels sprouts were marvelous, as always, but overall this particular night's culinary experience was disappointing.

great food as usual---the warm summer evening was a little hard inside; we in dining room farthest from doors and patio and it was very warm, couldn't feel much air-conditioning. Server was very friendly but a little scattered: forgot to return w/ forgotten items; drinking water was cool, not cold---ice in the pitcher had melted---and slow to be refilled.

Went here recently for our anniversary. Only been here once before and loved it, but this experience just didn't live up to the previous one. Got the brussel sprouts, which I recall being phenomenal last time, but this time they were just OK. Previously they had these big chunks of juicy pork in them, but this time it was more like dried out bacon bits. Pretty underwhelming. Got the flat iron steak for the entree, though, and that was pretty good.
The waitress was nice and helpful, but seemed to be rushing us out of there. Didn't even offer us dessert, then when we asked about she remarked that she didn't think we would want anything because we ate so much (i.e. basically calling us pigs). I'm sure she didn't mean it that way, but we thought it was funny.
Still enjoy the place, though, and I'm sure we'll be back.

I was very disappointed with my meal. I ordered the Crab Cake Eggs Benedict and it was terrible. The crab was mushy and tasteless, the bread was indistinguishable and soggy. We also ordered the Brussel Sprouts that everyone raves about and I wasn't impressed. There was very little of the balsamic sauce on them and they were underdone.

As per our waitress," the brussel sprouts pay the rent"when we commented on the great flavor of the roasted sprouts. We received them in a timely manner but then waited for an additional 45 minutes for our "simple" entrees. Not impressed w them and after waiting so long we just wanted to eat and get out. Sorry.

The ambiance and service was great but it was quite warm since the a/c could not keep up with the heat wave. My cocktail was great but the main course was bland. I'm allergic to dairy and egg and this affected the preparation but the fish and vegetables were not salted or seasoned well. Other nice restaurants accommodate my allergies and there is flavor even with a simple preparation. My husband said his pork was just okay. The kids meals were great.

We go here quite often and it can be hit or miss on food. This visit it was a bit of a miss. At the bar we had the jalapeno deviled eggs that were pretty bland and flavorless (no spice), the Brussels Sprouts for an app (it was enough for 4 pp and a waste of food), and a Panna Cotta dessert that was so old that the top of the custard/cotta was hard. Entrees were great. I love this place but it can be inconsistent on quality.

The food was delicious...we ordered the amazing Brussel sprouts, salmon and flat iron steak. Delicious flavor combinations and a good amount of food.
The waitress was kind and attentive and we love the decor of the interior and the spacious patio.
This is one of our favorite restaurants.

Service was timely, food was excellent and portions were generous, restaraunt is open providing refreshing air and views of the street, noise was moderate, easy to talk, server made an error on the split of the bill which manager contacted me the next day, very professional and god to see they are paying attention to detail. Highly recommended.

This place used to be good HOWEVER the food is just ok and service is just ok. Not a fan of communal seating and they will not let 2 people use their booths even with a reservation. They say it booked and no one shows up. RUDE! The brussel sprouts used to be AMAZING. Now they are disgusting the pancheta which used to be delicious is literally chunks of fat. Eww turned my stomach before getting my main course. Which was bland and they are serving up 2 day old dry as anything cornbread.

We tried this restaurant when it was first opened and was disappointed. It has not improved. The service does not meet the Cohn standard nor does the management. The flat bread crust tasted like cardboard. The salad lacked ingredients stated on menu and was not good. It took us at least 15 minutes to get our drinks. We have enjoyed Bo Beau in Point Loma. Sorry this branch is mediocre at best

This restaurant has gone downhill. It is not up to Cohn restaurant standards. We ate outside, which is in dire need of maintenance and landscaping care. I had the pork shank which was just OK, but the accompaniments were stale. My wife had the clambake, which did not come with bread and was mostly tasteless. I like Cohn restaurants and even buy the $1000 Cohn card at Costco, but this restaurant needs management.

This location was not great, the staff from the bartender to the hostess all dropped the ball. The bartender seemed interrupted to take our order. The hostess offered to bring our appetizer from the bar to our table simply left and our appetizer was cleared. Definitely will not be back to this location again. The topper was a couple brought a dog to the patio area who rummaged under our table while we thought about getting desert. We will not be back thank you

Food was served on boards that allowed sauce to run onto table. Sticky. Server was nice but didn't seem interested. Brussel sprouts were not cooked as Ocean Beach location. They were under done. Burger was to have pork belly on it, could not find any. Wine menu was insulting if you chose a lesser wine.

I initially wanted to have some duck confit but didn't see it on the menu that was provided. We went here for Father's Day for my hubby. He ordered the short-rib hash with gravy, I had the Royale Burger and we shared the brussels sprouts and deviled eggs for appetizers. EVERYTHING was delicious!!! If I did have to point out ONE thing, it would only be that the fries needs to be eaten IMMEDIATELY, it isn't too great once it gets cold but everything was nothing short of amazing. I cannot wait to come back and try something else. Another thing I wanted to mention is the staff is super friendly and the service was SUPERB!!!!

I was sadly disappointed in this place. It is expensive and the food is just OK, the service was bad to mediocre.
We started by ordering appetizers, when they arrived we asked the server for more place settings, there were only four for six people. The server just looked at us and asked if we wanted extra. We pointed out that we didn't have enough. After staring at our appetizer for a a while we realized he wasn't coming back and grabbed some from another table. A bit later he came back with the other appetizer but no plates.
The food had little flavor and the presentation was kind of plain. And did I mention how expensive it was?
I had really high expectations for a Cohn restaurant.
